Driven by strict codes of honour and bound by deep allegiances of rank, family or religion, the elite warriors of medieval Japan were bold fighters, loyal comrades and deadly enemies, With rare material from Japanese sources and lavish artwork and photography, this book examines the military lives, beliefs and battle experience of four formidable warrior types - samurai, ninja, warrior monk and ashigaru foot soldier - resulting in a highly authoritative account of Japan's warrior elite.
